University of Missouri To Study Roman Artifacts
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Students at the University of Missouri in Columbia will be the first in the nation to take part in a massive study of ancient Roman artifacts that have been stored in the Italian capital for more than a century. The three-year project, dubbed "The Hidden Treasure of Rome," will bring about 100,000 artifacts to U.S. universities to be studied, restored and catalogued. The University of Missouri is the first institution to be chosen for the work.
